    Authoring Dolby Vision compatible/compliant mp4 files for HTPC/Media Server Updated 05/01/2022

    I posted this elsewhere, figured maybe some people here might be able to use this though. I fucking hate Dolby Vision. It's pretty as hell, but it fragmented this video generation so much and even fragmented itself within the fragmentation it caused. And it's a proprietary color space. But it...

    WTB: Cheap laptop with legit Windows for TV calibration Edit: Got it

    Obviously don't want to be carrying around something with a cracked screen, but condition and speed really aren't that important of a factor - it's just to run Calman on various TVs around the house and at other places. Smaller and lighter the better for portability Netbook size would be best...

    Anybody mess with Dolby Vision UHD (non-DV Profile 5) files? Got some questions...

    Starting to figure out how to add Dolby Vision files to my Plex Server. I know MakeMKV can make DV mkv files now and Plex can play them - but I specifically got some questions about muxing the 2 hevc layers into other DV profiles in a mp4/m4v container for broader native device DV compatibility...

    I'm pretty sure, just want confirmation on AMD/MoBo/BIOS question

    If I have a Ryzen board with BIOS flashback feature, and I need to upgrade BIOS for Zen 3 compatibility, but no other AMD CPU - I can do this with the BIOS flashback feature, right? And if so, does it need to be done with no CPU installed, or the (at the time) incompatible CPU can be installed...

    Safe to pick up DDR4 RAM now for future Zen 3 build?

    I got a targeted offer from Newegg for 10% off RAM, plan on doing a Zen 3 build. Was gonna get Gskill 64 GB (2x 32GB) 3600 memory. Any reason not to pull the trigger on it now? Edit: I pulled the trigger, $196.65 cost to me for the 3600 64GB kit in the end.

    Want to turn Athlon II X4 into low powered dual core

    I want to truly lock 2 cores (not just have Windows ignore 2 cores). I assume it's the same as unlocking cores....just the opposite? Google will only give me info on unlocking - can't seem to find anything (aside from getting Windows to ignore cores) about locking cores in BIOS. Then plan to...

    GTX 650 & GTX 650 Ti SLI?

    Would the GTX 650 and GTX 650 Ti work together in SLI (with the Ti clocking/slowing down to match the non-Ti version) or are they too different to be paired in SLI? Thanks.

    Can you SLI a GTX 650 & GTX 650 Ti SSC?

    Both 1GB. I know if possible the Ti would lower its clocks to match the regular 650. Thanks.

    Windows 8 sucks; yeah, got it. For those of you who are on it, what Metro apps do you actually find yourself using aside from installing, trying out, and never touching again?
